I worked at the 29th Street Quad 6 as an assistant manager from 1986-87, moving over from Video-To-Go. By then it was a dollar house, but we managed to get Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Big Trouble in Little China as first run features. Screen #2 was our large auditorium, it even had a stage. We ran kids features for free Saturday mornings which drew well, and of course Ferris drew well, the others were moderately successful.
Mr Goodrich was very particular and adamant about maintaining his properties, and apparently he received an offer he couldn't refuse from the now defunct HQ chain and they demolished the theater to build a new store, albeit fronting 28th Street, sometime in the mid-1990's. When HQ went bankrupt shortly after a local Ford Dealer took over the property.
